Stephen – Graduate Mechanical Engineer

“The graduate program with Motherson provided an excellent opportunity to work with leading edge technologies in the field of automation. I worked alongside experienced engineers on a project that looked to automate their material handling system using Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles (AIV).

This placement provided excellent opportunities to apply lessons learnt through university in a real-world application, giving key insights into the range of pathways available for career progression within the manufacturing industry.”


Dylan – Graduate Design Engineer

“I completed a 12-week internship with Motherson Australia as part of my degree in mechanical engineering. During the internship, I was immersed in the fast-paced design and manufacturing environment at Motherson.

The experience was both challenging and rewarding – I assisted the introduction of new products and processes while also contributing to the improvement and optimisation of existing processes. The internship ultimately led me to a graduate design engineering position at Motherson.”
